Photos taken from
Mumbai, India- The Mumbai siege has ended after 60 hours of attacks by Indian Commandos. It was the worst terrorist attack in the country's history. The terror rage has ended up resulting to more than 195 people killed and almost 300 people were injured. The dead people includes 6 Canadians, 2 American rabbi, and many other foreign nationals. The series of attacks were executed in ten different locations including railway station, Jewish Center, Oberoi Hotel, Mumbai Hotel and other places of India's financial capital. A British politician fortunately escaped from Taj Mahal Hotel. As he was escaping, Sajjad Karim saw one of the gunmen smiled as he started to fire his machine gun in the lobby of the hotel. Lately, the gunman was captured and identified as Ajmal Asmir Kasar a 21 year-old member of Lashkar-e-Taiba "Army of the Righteous". He is a laborer and belongs to a poor family in Pakistan. He was responsible for the attack in the railway station in Mumbai. The chaos has ended on Nov. 29 and it leaves a question to Indian Security Forces, "who were these infiltrators and who were responsible for these attacks".
